talk about the second term, what do you think are the major priorities for president obama heading into the second term? >> i think gun control obviously is a big one. just think back before the shooting in connecticut. gun control was not even on the radar. now this is something that both the president, the vice president believe that you have to sort of seize the moment. there's some bipartisan support for what the president is pushing, also bipartisan opposition. we see the nra is promising to fight hard as well. the administration feels good in that the public sentiment seems to be on their side, the majority of americans believe there's some need for gun restrictions. and so they're trying to seize this moment in order to try to curb the gun violence, what we've seen out there recently. >> such an uphill battle because passions are so high on both sides on the gun control issue. another issue where passions are so high on both sides when it comes to president and congress, this debt ceiling fight. >> that's right. although now we're seeing some of the temperatures lower there

to "cnn newsroom." i'm suzanne malveaux. president obama spent the better part of the hour talking about the debt ceiling. so we'll go into the details about what it is, exactly. it is a cap on the amount of money the federal government may borrow. the cap is actually set by congress. so it includes money the federal government borrows from the public. for example, u.s. bonds, right? also includes debt that the treasury owes the government, trust funds like social security and medicare. right now, the ceiling, is it set at almost $16.4 trillion. the country's borrowing already hit that mark. that happened on december 31st. so the ceiling is raised periodically because both parties, they have to have approved the tax cuts and the spending increases over the years, knowing that they're going to add to the deficits. by doing so, they increase the country's need to borrow in the future. since 1962, congress has raised the debt limit 76 times, 11 times in the past decade. i want to talk about the debate over the debt ceiling, how it affects the overall economy. our georgia tech economic

of uncertainty, if you will. just today president obama was talking about what could happen if congress doesn't agree to let the government essentially pay its bills. let's listen. >> america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. if congressional republicans refused to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. >> so the truth is the president and the congress actually have to agree on all of this to end up getting a deal. but the question for you, suze, is what are americans supposed to do during a time of uncertainty? for example, if you're thinking about making a big purchase, should you do it now or wait till the president and the congress figures it out? >> the time has come, in my opinion that americans realize that their future cannot be in the hands of politicians. that their financial future has to be held tightly right within their own grips. and if they don't have the money to buy something outright, if they have to put it on a credit ca

new, feisty obama we are seeing since the elections, that's for sure, a question who he will be, as he moves into the second term slam. lot of talk about lincoln's second inaugural, which i think by standards is the gold standard and the greatest of the second inaugural addresses that we know. >> because? >> because it came at the pivotal moment of maximum peril for the nation and it was a real statement about how we could be larger as a democracy and reembrace those who had been against the country and come back together. but i have been looking at franklin ross vel's second inaugur inaugural, 1937, which is interesting, because it was a very can candid, honest progress report about what had not yet been accomplished coming out of the great depression but also a statement how we had to come together, useself government as the most noble expression. and use very precise terms, if you go back and look that the speech there is very real room for president obama now to say to the country, these are the things that will are left undone that we, together, must find a way to do >> michael

and how to do it in a creative way. >> you know, bill, i'm curious, people have talked a lot about president obama as a gifted speaker which, of course, he is. but then people say, well, that first inauguration speech was not his best moment. he tried to do a whole lot of different things. people say look, he tried to do so many different things that there wasn't that sort of one-lime memory that people get sometimes from inaugurals. will this one be different? more specific in more targeted? >> i think that people in this media environment really want to be able to pull a sound bite out and say this is the thing we are going to hang this whole speech on. this is what's going to define whether or not it's a great speech. and i think that the president, which we knew from the beginning of the last campaign, speaks in paragraphs, not in sound bites. you know, for better or for worse in some of the debates. i think this speech is going to be about talking directly with the american people about what is this moment and how can we actually still make progress even though the politics in
